X is for … ‘xciting ‘xpanding

… xpanding. xciting.
Cheating I know (exercising creative license I like to think) but xylophones and x-rays don’t really feature in day to day life!

If you missed my previous post P is for … pregnant

    Your’e kidding, xylophones don’t feature in your every day life?! Great pick, must be exciting and nerve-racking in about equal measure.

      Ooh, how exciting! My youngest grandchild has just started school, so my Daughter, Emma is suffering from Empty Nest Syndrome and has to keep busy all the time.

    I can not believe you are already on x – not an easy letter!

    Janet – we’re far enough along now that the nerves have left us and we’re just very excited now (although all this expanding is rather uncomfortable!)

    Joanna – xxxx always welcome – this little one will certainly be smothered in them

    Lynne – I love babies but there’s something very special about watching loved ones growing up and getting more curious and developing their own personality. I bet you have lots of smile making conversations with your granddaughter.

    Greg – tricky indeed, hence the creative license with spelling. Looking forward to your x further down the line – thinking of a word is one thing but illustrating it, quite something else. xtraordinary would be my suggestion for you :o)

    Shaheen – lots of happy faces here too :o)

I love how an ordinary moment frozen in time by the camera can actually reveal so much. Luca is all about inhabiting his body and jumping, running and climbing. Euan is all about the quirkiness, curiosity and inventions. There's more about these best friend brothers on the blog in this month's #siblingsproject post #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
This little one is negotiating hard to get out of food shopping with me. Even saying that poor Daddy will be hungry if we don't restock the fridge isn't working. Apparently Daddy will be fine eating a wooden mushroom while L watches telly! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerantics💜
#mischiefmakers #summerreadingchallenge starts today - you can find out more at your local library. E was excited to sign up and work towards earning his medal. There are some great activities taking place in Gloucestershire libraries this summer. #welovereadingbooks #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I'd love a packet of crisps the size of a pillow case to make the same toddler-to-Doritos bag ratio. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerliferocks
Love Saturday mornings. E's busy creating already with @geomagworld #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Beach buddies #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #bestfriendbrothers #nipitinthebudblog
Happy memories of our Cornwall break last month at the start of this super sunny heatwave season. #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #nipitinthebudblog
Our first "soaked on the school run" selfie in a long long time! So many smiles and "yay, it's raining" from everyone in the playground ☔😄 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I think Luca was channelling his inner Monet when he painted his duck money box #2yearoldartist #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I love finding pictures on my phone I'd forgotten about that remind me of a really special time with my boys (the Project Pilgrim celebration at @GlosCathedral a couple of weeks ago) #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Love this kids creativity - there's only so many times you can tolerate your little brother interrupting your game of giant Connect 4 after all! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
L fell asleep in the car today and stayed asleep when I got him out. I took this picture thinking I'd savour the moment and then wake him so that bedtime wouldn't be messy but just look at that face, I couldn't. So I enjoyed the cuddle instead and he's now snoring blissfully beside me again. Trust your baby, he knows what he needs 😴 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
